Two armed suspects arrested in stolen truck with stolen property
A 33 year old female and 20 year old male, both armed, were arrested following a vehicle stop at the West Seattle Thriftway in the Morgan Street Junction on Sunday, July 7.
Officers located stolen property from multiple burglaries and car prowls in their vehicle after the arrest.
At 1:00 pm, Seattle Police got a report of a stolen 2012 Nissan Frontier in the Thriftway parking lot. The car was reported by the King County Sheriff’s Office to be stolen vehicle. The officers performed a high risk stop and took the 20-year-old male suspect into custody. Officers then found and arrested a 33-year-old female inside the store. In the truck police found weapons including a .22 caliber revolver and a loaded shotgun.
Stolen property was found in the truck too, apparently taken from a number of burglaries ( jewelry, laptops, etc.) and carprowls in both the city and KCSO’s jurisdiction. It took multiple officers hours to catalog and process all of the stolen items to confirm their being stolen items. The female suspect also reportedly had outstanding burglary warrants. Both suspects were booked into the King County Jail on felony charges.
Detectives will handle the follow up investigation.
The Nissan Frontier was returned to the owner.
